Novice Dutch director and scripter Jef van der Heyden does not quite deliver an engaging drama in this slight, slow-paced tale about three brothers who dream about "bicycling to the moon" but whose reality is quite different. One of the brothers is a painter with little or no talent, another is both sensitive and introverted and yet chooses the career of a policeman, and the third brother is a hobo of sorts, a petty thief who uses the Amsterdam canals to hide the bicycles he nabs until he can come back and retrieve them the next day. Each brother wants to find happiness but does not seem to know how to go about achieving it.
